Power Plugs: There are several upstairs against the back wall. None in the huge, bright front room.

Size: Two floor cafe, a grand space with many options for seating.

Lighting: Loads of big windows for natural light. During a work day, candles are still lit, providing the perfect amount of Dutch ambiance.


Noise level:
When I arrived at 9:30am, no one else was there. There is soft music. Around IMG_6091lunch, slightly more busy, but not in the back. The silence was almost too much. Then around 5, it gets really busy for after work drinks.

Vibe: Typical dutch cafe-mostly. There is something gezellig about the decor here, though. Simple dutch lunch is served with normal coffees, beers, etc.


What we think:
Although we like it, it was a little too quiet and not enough vegetarian lunch. We had a cheat day and ate an uitsmitjer…or open-faced egg sandwich. It was normal by Dutch standard.
